Taster Sessions

Goalball UK # Get Involved logo

Winchester Goalball Club is a fun and friendly club open to players of all abilities from age 8 upwards. Our members come from across Hampshire and the adjoining counties. We are 10 year’s old this year and are opening up our doors as we would like to share our love of goalball with you! We will be holding a taster session on Saturday 25th March for 8-16 year olds who would like to try out the sport. It’s free to come along. We will provide all of the equipment but recommend that you wear long sleeves and trousers. Our only request is that you email us to let us know you’re coming for planning purposes.

All you need to start a club

  • A quiet gym, and, if it has a volleyball court marked in it it’s a bonus as this is the same size as a Goalball court and you can use these lines for guidance
  • Tape and string to mark out the court
  • A ball that makes a noise, preferably a goalball but if you have youngsters playing it may be advisable to start with a Jingle Ball which is larger and softer than a Goalball, or a Kixz football
  • Padding, to cover elbows, knees, hips, chest (for girls) and groins (for boys)
  • Eyeshades, like ski goggles but sleepshades could be used to start with, these are less expensive although they do not offer the same protection
  • Goals can be formed from gym benches initially but players need to be warned to be careful not to fall over them.
  • Some willing players!!
